It’s a bench. It’s a solar phone charger. No, it’s a bench AND a solar phone charger

The city has just installed a “Soofa Bench” near the downtown waterfront at Jose Marti Park. It’s a solar bench that allows you to charge your mobile devices.

This one also has a ‘people counter’ included. The city’s Office of Sustainability hopes to learn if adding the bench increases activity in the area.

The park also will be used starting this month for art installations for the Canvas Outdoor Museum Show. The person pictured here pretending to be listening intently while charging her phone, is art gallerista Nicole Henry, who leads the charge as founder of Canvas.
